Nancy Henry attends the Trollope Bicentennial Conference in Leuven, Belgium

Recently, Professor Nancy Henry participated the Trollope Bicentennial Conference at the Irish College in Leuven, Belgium. This conference brings together leading Trollope scholars and other prominent Victorianists as well as promising younger researchers. Trollope’s work offers an extraordinarily powerful prism for the study of discursive regimes and cultural practices in the long nineteenth century, and the ambition of the bicentennial conference was to test that prism to the full by rereading his work in its diverse contexts.

While at the conference, Henry presented her paper “Trollope’s Women Investors” on the panel “Economic Trollope” with fellow panelist Tamara Wagner (Nanyang Technical University, Singapore).
